Getting Back to our roots!

Today you may associate the Fair with carnival rides and food, but when it was originally formed, it was an agriculturally focused fair, a community effort, and a place to exhibit your hard work to either show off or sell. Following suit with our theme this year, The Piedmont Interstate Fair has partnered with our Local Spartanburg 4H, with the assistance and guidance of the Clemson Cooperative Extension Office and are excited to have more agriculture back at the Fair! Joining our annual Goat show, this year we will have a brand new show, a Poultry Show! And back from its hiatus, the Junior Beef Livestock Show! Whether you know about it, curious about it, or are walking by, we encourage you to come by the upper barns on Tuesday (Goat Show), Wednesday(Poultry Show), and Thursday (Beef Show) nights at 6pm, and see the dedication and hard work of our local youth who enter into these shows. Show your support and lets get back to our roots!!

Dear Friends,

The Piedmont Interstate Fair Association had a stellar year in 2021 as we celebrated our 75th Anniversary Fair. That success has continued throughout 2022 and we look forward to culminating it with another fantastic Fair this October.

Our Board of Directors, Officers and Staff are excited to provide entertainment, competition, contests, educational opportunities, delicious food and just plain fun for everybody no matter your age or background.

The House of Flowers, Commercial Building and Agriculture Building all provide opportunities for competition, exhibition, and education. The Cattle Barns present an assortment of farm animals and a petting zoo, a truly educational experience for children and adults. This year we will have the SC Meat Goat Show, poultry shows, and the first cattle show since 2014 - falling right in line with our theme for this year’s Fair: “Our Roots Are In Agriculture.” We encourage everyone to take the time to enjoy these areas that are included as part of your gate admission.

We are happy to welcome a new partner this year with Prime Time Carnival providing amusement rides and games of chance on the Midway. Although we will be starting a day late this first year with them, we look to gain it and potentially some additional days back in the coming years. Alongside our returning crowd pleasers Lew-e the Clown, Nick’s Kids Show, Doc Magic, we will have a very entertaining Racing Pigs Show in the Midway every day! Joining us this year in our animal barn will be Camp Carousel Petting Zoo & More! Our stages will have live music every night and our food vendors on the Midway and the Food Court provide a wonderful variety of culinary experiences (corn dogs are my favorite).

Our gratitude goes out to our sponsors for their faithful support. These sponsors provide the financial support that allows us to pay premiums for so many categories, provide entertainment, and help us keep ticket prices affordable. Please show your appreciation by supporting them at every opportunity during the coming year.

Our deepest appreciation is extended to all of our exhibitors, and those who volunteer their time and services to bring the Fair to our community. We are humbled by and grateful for our volunteers and employees who work so hard to make it a successful event year after year.

Our Association strives to continue these great traditions while bringing the newest rides, entertainment and exhibits to our patrons. Grab you family and friends and come have a wonderful time with us at The Piedmont Interstate Fair.


Yours truly,

J.P. Baehr, President
